TIP 2: Needs Assessment

EDUC 629

Strengths What are the current strengths?


For several years, counselors have done an excellent job of integrating technology while relating to topics
student are familiar with. The Institute of Education Science (2010) reported that teachers testified to
having access to LCD (liquid crystal display) or DLP (digital light processing) projectors, interactive
whiteboards, and digital cameras. With these tools, counselors have transformed their trips and students
assignments. Being a mobile camp, we only use the LCD projector when we are at the headquarters.
Students use the digital camera since most of them do not have mobile devices. Students are proficient at
uploading photos to the camps network.
Weaknesses What are the current weaknesses?
The camp needs to get better at teaching technical literacy. The state of Texas defines a technology
literate student as one who has mastered the Technology Applications TEKS for grades K-8 (19 TAC,
Chapter 126). The Austin Red House must assemble a bigger team of technical specialist to assist with
training and technical support. The strain of support shows in the counselors lack of training to teach
21st-century skills. Another issue is that a large number of students who take the mandatory standardized
test do not have access at home. According to the Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA),
fewer than 30 percent own a computer device and only 15 percent of households have an Internet
connection (Phillips, 2015).
Opportunities What are the future opportunities?
To assist with giving students access in their homes The Unlocking the Connection pilot program and
the non- profit EveryoneOn can assist with giving students digital literacy, technology, and broadband.
Each student will have the opportunity to use their technology to empower themselves and gain
experience in the community. Counselors and or the team of technical specialist can find apps and
software for students with exceptionalities.
Threats What threatens those future opportunities?
The camps technology budget will be depleted from independent contract skills trainers. If the budget is
imbalanced, this could threaten the loaning of technology to students, training for students and
counselors. Without the technical support, it will be hard for counselors and students to maintain the
refurbish equipment. If students do not have laptop or computer at home, it threatens the students
likelihood of pass the STAAR exam to their maximum potential. If neither counselors nor student obtains
technical training, it will put the non-profit behind on its goals. On the other hand, if students do receive
technology that they can take home there is the possibility of them misusing the device.

Until the school has two dedicated technical
specialists we will continuously be looking to
higher for the position. Counselors will be
trained on technology topic such as Curriculum
(4 hours), Research (2 hours), Diversity (6
Hours), Mobile Computing Devices (4), and
Trends (4 hours)
Staff will receive training on technology and
emerging trends throughout the year. Once a
year staff is required to attend a technical
conference or expo. The counselors will use
the tools they received from professional
development training to further student
learning when on trips or on campus.

Professional Development Plan


At this moment in time counselors will continue to use online training to help the stay on top of
technology trends that can help further student learning. As per usual the camp will keep a record
of training each counselor has completed. The Austin Red House will move towards technical
training for specific subjects. Every year, counselors are required to attend one conference or
workshop thats related to educational technology. The school will actively look for a dedicated
technology specialist who will help take the use of technology in our program to another level.
